With the aim of fostering parent-child relationship, MGM recently collaborated with The Women’s General Association of Macau to launch the “MGM Leo’s T-shirt Design Contest” – an activity for local children to unleash their creativity while making a joint effort with parents to design t-shirts for MGM Ambassador Leo Sincere. His new T-shirts will serve as a canvas to convey the message of family harmony and the need to build a caring and supportive society.
The award presentation ceremony of the “MGM Leo’s T-shirt Design Contest” was held at the Grand Ballroom of MGM COTAI. Guests included Sun Yaohua, Assistant Director of Economic Affairs Department of the Liaison Office of the Central People's Government in the Macau SAR; Leong Vai Kei, Deputy Director of the Education and Youth Affairs Bureau; Cheang Kai Meng, Head of Division of Recreational Activities of the Cultural Affairs Bureau; and representatives of The Women's General Association of Macau, including President Lam Un Mui, Vice Chairwoman Chan Oi Chu and Vice Presidents Un Sio Leng and Luo Ping. They were joined by Wendy Yu, Executive Vice President of Human Resources; Michelle Chiu, Vice President of Human Resources; Catarina Lio, Vice President of Brand Marketing; and Irene Wong, Vice President of Public and Community Relations of MGM.
A cheering squad comprising children of MGM team members gave a lovely dance performance at the opening. After a while the winning teams, including participating children and their parents, along with other entrants from MGM and The Women's General Association of Macau, modeled their own designs at a catwalk show. The ceremony was rounded off with a joint performance by children and volunteers from MGM and The Women's General Association of Macau, who sang in sign language to highlight the importance of family togetherness and social inclusion.
Lam Un Mui, President of The Women's General Association of Macau, said, “The design contest fostered children’s interest in arts and offered an opportunity for them to partner with their parents and unleash their creativity. This parent-child interaction would allow them to better understand each other, which is a key to building a harmonious family. Sharing the same belief, we have joined forces with MGM to introduce a range of community events and services over the years. Earlier this year, MGM thoughtfully introduced health-checking robots to our nurseries, which was the first of its kind in Macau. They also donated children’s masks and provided cleaning services to us. Looking ahead, we will continue to work closely with MGM to enhance our city’s family-friendly measures.”
Launched in September, the “MGM Leo’s T-shirt Design Contest” received more than 700 entries from The Women's General Association of Macau, local students and children of MGM team members. A panel of judges by representatives of the government, The Women's General Association of Macau, Macau Productivity and Technology Transfer Centre and MGM was formed to rate the entries in October. Moreover, the public were invited to vote their favorite design on the MGMShare Facebook Page for the “Most Popular Award”. Winners of the contest received an exhilarating array of prizes offered by both organizers, and when Leo Sincere takes part in community events in the future, he will wear the award-winning designs to promote family harmony.
